Kelly is Cal's top returning scorer and rebounder after averaging 10.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game as a junior in 2020-21. The Stockton, California, native ranked second in the Pac-12 with a 58.7 percent shooting clip from the field and scored in double figures 15 times along with two double-doubles. In 92 career games played, Kelly has averaged 8.0 points and 5.2 rebounds per game while shooting 56.4 percent from the field.
